I had one on a H9 advance when I was on a project out west. Altitude was about 4900 ft above sea level on the ground. I usually ran a 12x6 to 12x8 on it, and it had no problems turning well.

Haven't run it in a while, and don't have any tach numbers for you, sorry.

APC 12.25 X 3.75 works well on the .48 with a clean airframe.

Considering the airplane as well as the engine, I would think a 12x6 would give you pretty good performance. You want good vertical, but you also need a decent speed if you intend to do knife-edge flight (point rolls, slow rolls, etc.) I think APC props are basically more efficient.

Thanks to all,
I have a 12x6 mounted on the Cap and all we need now is for some co-operation from the weather.
